    Origin of the Name "Alpine"

    Is it related to the Alps? or a name of some antropologist?

    no to the alps, it was believed the alpine race was predominant there, in reality, the center in europe is france. Northern switzerland and souther germany have strong keltic nordic influence.

    AW: Origin of the name..

    Originally there were two "mountain races" in Central Europe, the Dinarids and the Alpinids. The first being the herders and warlike merchants and specialists (reference to the Bell Beakers in particular), a rather dominant force, very common in higher and the highest regions, the later the peasantry of isolated valleys and somewhat higher regions. Therefore the Alps themselves are, depending on population history and original subsistence pattern mostly Alpinid and Dinarid, unless there came later waves of people or areas in which the selective pressures for Alpinisation or Dinarisation didnt work. The Dinarid type is much more of a "mountain race", whereas Alpinids finally, over time, spread in all areas where the conditions were rather stable but unfavourable (nutrition, diseases, dependence, absence of group selection etc.).

    So its not wrong to call the type Alpine/Alpinid, but one must always add that they are not the only mountain type, in some regions even not at all and share the territory since ancient times with other variants. They almost never inhabited larger areas exclusively and Alpinisation is a process rather. The Dinarid and Dinaroid, Dinariform types are the real "specialists" for the mountainous and higher areas it seems, at least if the nutrition is sufficient.
